    We are booked for May 28th through June 3rd. I need advice on what parks would be less crowded for Memorial Day. Any advice on how to plan out my week so I know where to make dinner reservations???

    Hi, Karen! One of the things I have fantasized about is having a "Disney Crowd-O-Meter" on my watch so that at any given time of any day, I can know what the crowds are like at Disney theme parks! Wouldn't that be great? I'd love to know myself, but it's also one of the most frequent questions we're asked on the Disney Moms well as personally by friends and family.

    Of course, any holiday weekend is going to be crowded at a Disney theme park with the Memorial Day Weekend being of the most crowded. The best "crystal ball" prediction I can offer is to head over to my friends at You can subscribe or order their various products or applications in order to make the most of your vacation plans. They have nifty little crowd predictors based on the research of many, many guests and lots of park history. Plus, they can give you suggestions on how to orchestrate every day of your trip!

    Depending on the people in your traveling party, I suggest making Advanced Dining Reservations for one sit-down meal per day. Any more than that and it cuts into valuable touring time, and I think everyone needs the chance to rest, relax and reflect once a day at a meal together during vacation.

    I hope this helps you plan! Come back if you have more questions. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
